GREETINGS

To our Almighty God, we appreciate you for your protection and thank you for the lives of our pupils and taking us through the 5th Week which just ended last Friday, 8th February 2019.

As it has become our routine every week to share our stories with our students, parents, community and international supporters, we are here once again with highlights of what happened during the 5th week and keep you informed of our fearless plans for the future.

SUCCESS STORIES

WEEK 4 RECAP

During the 4th Week, the Morning Glory class, aged 3-4years - Ms. Susana Amoakoah, the class teacher, ensured the class excelled as they continued to write the lower case alphabet from a to u. The students are shining weekly as they continue to learn the numbers 0 – 30. To get the full update about the week 4, plesase click on the link below this report.

WEEK 5 REVIEW (4-8 February 2019)

The Morning Glory class is still improving their writing skills by practicing the lowercase alphabet. We have moved from “u” to “v”. Mathematics skills are improving as the students work on grouping the numbers.

The Carnation class (also known as kindergarten two, aged 5-6 years) persists as the students engage in the following activities: Environmental Science - Seasons and Climate; molding and casting and were as measurement of height. In term of mosaic, the activity was on imaginative drawing;

Our Headmistress, Ms. Joyceline, also has the responsibility of teaching. During Week 5, she narrated a story for the Carnation class. The pupils were asked to do their own imaginative drawing to provide illustrations for the following story:

“Once upon a time, Dede and Aku went to a field to play.   Dede shot a ball so high it hit the sun. The sun was sad and went away. He, Sun, told Mr. Clouds, who got angry, then rain and rain and rain. Dede and Aku couldn’t play again”.

The class was able to create, from their respective imagination, drawings. All shared and the class was great fun.

Should go home without back to school?
Should go home without back to school?

Dear Our Donors,

We are much grateful to you all, our donors for your support to sustain the project from its inspection up to this crucial point of reading our updated report from the field. For a few months now, I have been reporting to you the situation of the school that I mentioned that if we could not receive any intervention, our school for the children in the Gbawe community will need to close down on December 15, 2018. So what now?

We now have less than one (1) month so the landlord has been disturbing us since we have been not able to raise the fund. So, the school will close down now? No, at the moment! Why since you have been not able to raise the amount needed?

There has been one an anonymous donor who has been supporting us with a monthly donation of $100 and another monthly by Name Patricia who as also be given us a monthly donation of $25. We salute them and you for your support. So will the $125 donations will be pay for the rented amount needed? No, we are working hard to solicit a loan from a Bank that we are praying or expecting to receive it by the rent agreement date to help us to pay for next 5 months while we will be writing to companies to come to our aid. Please do you know any company that you think could help us? Would you share the information to us?

We need to raise an amount of $10,000 and so far, we have raised $1,350 from the donations mentioned above and some other donations totaled $1,350.

The loan we are looking for we will need to repay it monthly. Please would you help us with any amount you can afford? We are pleading to you all to help us sustain the school for the next one year. Please even, $1 makes a difference since little drops of water makes a might ocean.

About the kids in the school, how are they doing?

The children are in fact, doing well but with hope lost at the moment? Should they get their bags and go home?

Please, we need your help, would you please share this post with your friends for us? Even $1 makes a difference.

Do you have any question that you would like PAAJAF to answer? Is yes, would you let us know? We would be more than happy to answer all questions.

Thank you

Our Donors,

We the staff and students here at PAAJAF Foundation school  will continuously express our sincere appreciation to you for your pass benevolentness towards us - our scholarship school at Gbawe in Ghana. 

In fact, your donation has sustained the school from inception to today as I am writing to you.  The school is now in examination weeks and will vacate for the 3rd term break on August 8, and will resume   on September 4, 2018 to start the 2018/2019 academic year.

As YOU are our partner in this project - by making great changes from your distance- YOU commendable and we need to respect and appreciate you as well as mentioning you wherever possible.  We value YOUR investment a lot, it is mandatory to update you to see how things are going on at the project site due to your investment into the education of the lives of children at Gbawe, Ghana.

As previously reported, as at today July 23, 2018.  We are still maintaining the 145 students we have in the school.  The children are aged 2 - 7 years. Currently it is from Creche to Primary 1.  September 4, 2018, we have decided to hold on the primary 1, due to lack of space in our current venue and no fund to locate space. Unfortunately, the parents/guardians of these children/students are been disturbed but we don’t have option till support is received. Do YOU please have any input or question since you also own this project that is why we have been updating you?

As we also reported to YOU about our current situation of our school venue. We are in a rented premises and the rent expires on December 14, 2018 and the LandLord has asked us to move from the premises if we could not afford to pay the rent.  In fact, we have no fund to pay it now and if no intervention is received the school will shout-down.

Fortunately, we have got one anonymous  donor have started giving us a monthly donation of $100 towards this and July 16, we have received another one-time donation of $20 which also we value it as lot and contributes to it. We would like to appeal to you all our previous donors and our future donors to come to our to aid to raise the current balance of this project which is $3205 to contribute towards it.  Though we need $10,000 as we are looking for other avenues to reach this goal.

Once again, we THANK YOU all for the great support and the trust YOU have got to invest in your project.

Bravo!!!
